Warm winter sun destinations in Europe

Swap the cold for the Mediterranean sun!

If you’re a sun-worshipper like me, you probably also dream of escaping the dark British winter! That stretch from November to March is a bit too long to go without a warm spot of Mediterranean sun. Luckily your winter holiday is just a few hours away. And that’s something everyone in the family can agree on.

Not just chasing that winter sun!

Sure, it’s lovely to escape the cold when you take a winter sun break. But for me you also get to explore a new destination in a quiet time of the year.

I think of Portugal’s long sandy beaches, which will now lie empty! Or enjoying Spain’s fiery music in a little taverna with just the locals for company. Or tasting the delicious cuisine in a deserted café in Cyprus. Last winter I took a long break and toured around an entire region, staying for a night or two here and there before continuing on my merry way. And everywhere was so quiet! 

If such a winter break appeals, then you can rely on me to ensure a safe trip for you and that you can be guaranteed that all hygiene and safety standards are met by our partners. All you’ll have to do is relax!

Where does the sun shine in winter?

Sunny winter destinations

A sun holiday in November, December, January, February or March? There are plenty of beautiful spots around the Mediterranean where you can escape the winter cold. In just a few hours, you can be at your sun-drenched location away from the crowds.  

To make it through the cold winter days, I have collected my favourite spots for you to choose from for a winter sun holiday in Europe! And if I may give you a tip: celebrating the Holidays abroad is the best. Nothing beats travelling during the Holidays and discovering other countries' Holiday traditions.  

In 2022, I have plenty of locations for you to spend the winter, and of course you can always count on me for last minute bookings to the winter sun. 

Winter sun in Spain  

You often find me at the Spanish Costas in winter; it's sort of become my second home. I'd swear the tapas taste even better in winter! In southern Spain, average daily temperatures are around 17 °C, and on Spanish islands like Gran Canaria, Lanzarote and Tenerife, they're even a few degrees higher. Ease the long wait for summer by enjoying Spanish island life this season. 

Winter sun in Portugal  

I love visiting the Portuguese winter sun in the colder months. Portugal offers the perfect combination of a quiet interior, a sunny coast, and lively cities for a fun day trip. From the Costa Verde to the Algarve, this is a splendid winter holiday destination. And my favourite Portuguese winter destination? It has to be Madeira with its eternal spring flowers. 

Winter sun on Cyprus 

Cyprus has that Mediterranean climate – mild winters with plenty of sunshine. It's an island with many faces. Inland with endless fruit plantations and picturesque villages to explore, gorgeous beaches for a lazy day, and many antiquities for a touch of culture and history. And Cypriot cuisine is like nothing I'd tasted before: a true culinary journey of exploration! 

If you book a car holiday, you can travel to your destination with your own transport.

If you book a flight holiday with me, it always includes accommodation and rental car!
